What better way to spend a summer Saturday afternoon than being outdoors, having an ice cold latte...trees, fresh air and sketching with fellow sketchers in the city.

This is a cool archway, the Jubilee Grove on Patterson and Kingsway. If you looked straight through the arch, you might find some random couple sitting on the platform of the fountain. I liked how the arch naturally framed them. I often though of photographing it whenever the opportunity came again and then one day, it did. I chickened out though. I felt like a paparazzi intruding on their quality time together. So, a sketch to capture this heritage site was a better alternative. I had to come back to this place on three different days at three different times to get some kind of cast shadow happening.

Dr. Sketchy #2. This was held at the Wallflower. Such a great vibe in the place, friendly atmosphere, cool music and we all were treated to a dance/tease by Dolly Dynamite before taking it off. I took the liberty of cleaning up my sketchy lines and smoothing out the tones after. These were selected from several other drawings that were either warm up sketches or remained unfinished (hmmm...must have been distracted by something else.)

This is a practice painting I did with watercolors using a picture from the internet. (Painting city streets and buildings was not a very good subject for someone starting out. I thought this barn was good enough to start with!) I woke up 6:00am one morning to see what it felt like to paint before starting my work day. I continued this the next two mornings at around 630am. It felt good to start the day with some art and a proper breakfast.
